It is a fact that water is very essential for every living thing. However, water shortage problem in Karachi has aggravated and no one at the helm of affairs seems to pay any heed to the acute water crisis. It is our bad luck that in our city many areas are facing huge problems due to the shortage of waters. The resident of F.B area are suffering from acute shortage of water , the supply of water here is just for some hours for which we cannot able to save water even for few days. Resident of locality has no choice but to surrender to the tanker mafia. Due to the shortage of water in the city tanker mafia is earning profit. From posh localities to the slums, the water crisis is affecting everyone in the metropolis. The municipal authorities should solve this issue, affecting millions of lives, at the earliest.
